Hamas "Work Accident" Destroys Gaza Street

Palestinians reported that at least seven eleven people have been killed and 40 more wounded in a large explosion in northern Gaza on Thursday afternoon.

Hamas sources told Ynet that two of the seven people killed were senior operatives from the organization: Hassan Abu-Shakfa, one of the organization's commanders in northern Gaza, and Ashraf Mushtaha, another of Hamas' senior operatives.

Despite the immediate blame from the Palestinians and usual Arab sympathizers, the IDF has stated unequivocally, that they had nothing to do with the explosion in Beit Lehia (Gaza), and that it was apparently the handiwork of Gaza's finest terror activists who failed "bomb assembly 101" (YNET)

With over 50 rockets hitting Southern Israel today, I'm rather underwhelmed by the destruction in Gaza.










Ooops. There went the neighborhood.

Wherever I am, my blog turns towards Eretz Yisrael טובה הארץ מאד מאד

"the IDF has stated unequivocally, that they had nothing to do with the explosion"

i don't understand why the idf wouldn't take responsibility? aside from the usual international condemnation, it would help bolster the IDF's image among its adversaries.

Oops. But that's what you get when you store explosives in a home.

Well, that'll drive down the property values!

Lion, the policy in Israel has always been to stick to plausible deniability when possible. It's a lot scarier when you don't know who's really responsible (remember, our cousins tend toward paranoia, and even paranoids have enemies) or what to expect next.

Personally, I think it was done by a Gazan developer who wants to snatch up the properties cheaply so he could make....a killing!

That is not a neighborhood.

No.

It is a settlement!

Please, keep to proper semantics. This is the Middle East.

That must've been some accident. My los angeles personal injury attorney would have a field day with a case like that.

I really feel bad for the people who safer from this situation.

Terry said...

Well, if the IDF didn't do it, then I guess this counts as a kind of work-related accident. I'm just not sure what insurance companies, like our own prudential life, would have to say about this though.
